In that season he hit .377 with 11 doubles and four triples, scoring 32 runs and drove in 28.
The Melbourne native went on to the University of Richmond where he was the everyday shortstop and led the team in hits (66), average (.327), runs (40), home runs (5), and RBI (41) as a senior.
He was drafted in the 20th round by the Toronto Blue Jays. He was hitting .304 in 69 at-bats this season at Triple A with three home runs and 10 RBI.
He becomes the second former Titan to make their Major League Baseball debut this season. Tommy Romero made his debut with the Tampa Bay Rays in April.
